Environmentally sound management of polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) - containing equipment and wastes and upgrade of technical expertise in Bolivia

Evaluation report on Environmentally sound management of PCB-containing equipment and wastes and upgrade of technical expertise in Bolivia.pdf


The project brought together different participants to meet the same objective and eliminate PCBs for the first time in Bolivia. One of the main achievements was awareness of PCBs' environmental and human health risks. After the project, the resources necessary for the ESM of PCBs are perceived as an investment; behavioural changes, including preventive measures throughout the sector and demystifying fieldwork with PCBs, are also identified. The project disposed of 149.6 tons of PCBs. This terminal evaluation was a part of a Cluster evaluation of eight UNIDO PCB projects.
